Long Time, No see!

I can’t believe it’s been since last August since I updated the blog! So much has been going on with life, time just ran away from me. ¬†I’ll try to do better in future. ūüôāImage

So what’s been going on in the last 9 months? ¬†Press-wise, I’ve been a busy bee! ¬†Ellison’s Organics has been lucky enough to¬†be selected to be featured in a couple of high-profile, exclusive gift lounges honoring celebrities and press! ¬†My soaps and nail polish have been present at the GBK Gift Lounges for the 2013 Golden Globes and 2014 MTV Movie Awards. ¬†

ImageMy nail polish has made it to the desk of the editor at SELF Magazine (fingers crossed you’ll see it in print!), and soon, my¬†organic-oils kids’ soaps will be presented to select members of the press at a¬†Consumer Products Holiday press gifting¬†event (fingers even¬†crossed-ier!) ¬†Past attendees have included:¬†Allure Magazine, People Magazine, The Wall Street Journal, LA Times, NY Times, Ladies Home Journal, Time Magazine, Glamour, Bazaar, Esquire Magazine, InStyle, Reuters, and CNN, among other publications.

I’ve got another big surprise coming, but I’ll fill you in on that one a little later, so stay tuned!

Personally, I’ve taken up running! ¬†I never, ever, evereverevereverever thought I would be a runner. ¬†Ever. ¬†However, I needed a Imageway to work some stress out and it has proven to be much more enjoyable than I ever thought. ¬†I¬†started out walking and¬†eventually worked my way up to a trot. Now I’m at a mild run and I have my first 5K in two weeks! I’ll do a post about that, but I can’t promise any post-race pics. I am not a “cute” excerciser. ¬†Think bright¬†red face (kind of like “On the Town” on the right) and a nice sheen of “glistening” by the time I’m finished.¬†

Thing 1 is going to start Kindergarten in the Fall and Thing 2 is going to start preschool! ¬†I can’t believe how big the boys have gotten. ¬†They are both in their own bunk bed in their own room, and we’re working on potty training Thing 2 (verrrrry slowly). ¬†I look forward to the day when I don’t have to buy another diaper.

Thanks for stopping by! ¬†I’m so glad to be able share the journey of myself and Ellison’s Organics with you!
